The first event put on by the Greater Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce that I attended was their big annual networking event at the FIllmore called "SchmoozaPalooza." And it was great, which led me to join the Chamber a week or so later. However, as a designer, I was of the mind that there was A LOT of room for improvement with the event's logo (sorry Jane!). And now, nearly five years later, Carlton Creative has developed a wonderful partnership with the Chamber's leadership, which has at long last led to the opportunity to give that original logo the makeover it deserves. 🙂
If you want to get to know Silver Spring's business community and its terrific Chamber a bit better, then SchmoozaPalooza is really a great place to start. See you there!
A year ago, Carlton Creative issued its very first invoice from Malaysia. It was a great start to this new venture... and also a great adventure! To kick off the second year, I have decided to temporarily relocate to stylish Buenos Aires, Argentina (where it is *ahem* currently 88°F) for a month starting two weeks from today, on Jan. 17.
Historically, this time of year has proven to be fairly quiet work-wise, but I will be equipped to attend to clients' needs while in South America. Although my availability will be somewhat limited at times, particularly while traveling outside of Buenos Aires, I will do my best to respond to requests or inquiries within 24 hours. Fortunately, there is only a +2 hour time difference between Washington, DC and Argentina. Full (local) service will resume when I return to my Silver Spring office on Feb. 20.
I would like to express my warmest appreciation to all the wonderful clients, partners and friends who helped make the first year of Carlton Creative truly special. It is my hope that the professional relationship we have shared – whether decades old or brand new – will continue to flourish in 2018 and beyond.
Wishing you all the very best for the holidays and the coming year. ... See MoreSee Less
Since 2006, the arrival of December on the calendar has meant one thing for me: the intense layout phase of the American Tort Reform Association's annual Judicial Hellholes report, which provides an no-holds-barred overview of what the association perceives to be the worst jurisdictions for lawsuit abuse throughout the country. The rollout of the report came a little earlier than usual this year, so the past week has been extra intense!
This Saturday, I had the pleasure of marching in my first Thanksgiving Parade with my friends in the The Rotary Club of Downtown Silver Spring. We had more than 500 books to hand out to kids along the parade route; however, these proved to be so popular that they were mostly gone by the time we reached the end of the first block! Fortunately, with brand new signs, bookmarks and flyers for our Storytown literacy project (designed by Carlton Creative and printed by Spectrum Printing & Graphics), we were still able to get our message out about the joys of reading and promote the club to the community. A very good time was had by all! ... See MoreSee Less
